Joan Smalls In Helmut Lang & Altuzarra – ‘Lovelace’ New York Premiere

Joan Smalls In Helmut Lang & Altuzarra - 'Lovelace' New York Premiere

Like Naya Rivera, Joan Smalls was taking the crop-top trend to the next level yesterday evening while attending the New York screening of ‘Lovelace’.

The stunning model must have had jaws dropping in her wake as she wore a black Helmut Lang asymmetrical bra top with a colourful Altuzarra pali-print high-waisted skirt styled with a black Givenchy envelope clutch and Tom Ford triple-buckle sandals.

A perfect advert for all those brands if I ever saw one.

Soft curls and neutral makeup completed her look.

I am going to stick both this and the picture of Naya by my computer, so the next time I want to blow off a Bikram Yoga class, this will give me inspiration.

Most of you said Naya’s look was trashy, so what do you think about this look?

Lea Michele In Helmut Lang, Brochu Walker & Kimberly Ovitz – Target FEED Collaboration Launch

Lea Michele In Helmut Lang, Brochu Walker & Kimberly Ovitz - Target FEED Collaboration Launch

Lea Michele attended the Target FEED Collaboration launch at Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York City yesterday evening.

The ‘Glee’ actress wore a sleek Helmut Lang blazer with a red Brochu Walker top and a fitted Kimberly Ovitz tulip skirt, which she accessorized with Christian Louboutin black sandals and a Switch statement necklace.

I feel like the necklace is totally out of tune with the rest of her look, and that’s not even factoring in how OTT this necklace is for the charity event.

Her outfit says dressy casual, while the necklace says a night out at the Oscars.

A purposely messy side-swept braid completed her look.

Models @ 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Models @ 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Some of our favourite cat-walkers were among the mix of style royalty at the 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards at Lincoln Center’s Alice Tully Hall in New York City. The models definitely had their moment last night, strutting out a slew of bold-name designers and even bolder looks to match.

Adriana Lima: Donning a leggy and luxe Riccardo Tisci for Givenchy Fall 2013 confection, this Brazilian beauty did justice to the edgy designer—who was the CFDA International Award Winner—even with black bloomers peeking through the gown. A center-parted ‘do and glowing makeup finished the look. Fellow model Joan Smalls rocked a similar Givenchy sheer design at the amfAR Cinema Against AIDS Gala. Who do you think wore it best?

Miranda Kerr: This model mom made waves with a retro-modern frock by Proenza Schouler. The square neckline and fit-and-flare shape were nothing if not fun and provided the perfect palette for the trippy, painterly cerulean and verdigris hues. More sophistication came with a classic pair of black, triple ankle-wrap Stuart Weitzman heels, Jennifer Meyer jewels and a silver Stuart Weitzman clutch, along with a fuchsia lippie and low bun.

Joan Smalls: The lovely Latina wore a breezy white, strapless Givenchy gown. The matte white panel on the bottom created a sort of casual, sundress feel. But upon closer inspection, it was anything but beach-y with a corseted bodice and sheer lace-embellished skirt. The glittering choker-necklace added a daring, darker note.

Beyonce Knowles In Helmut Lang – Battery Park

Beyonce Knowles In Helmut Lang - Battery Park

After an epic performance from Beyonce at the ‘Chime For Change: The Sound Of Change Live’ Concert on Saturday in London – where her husband Jay Z joined her on stage, much to the crowd’s delight – the couple were spotted back in New York City on Sunday out on a date, seeing ‘Iron Man 3’ in Battery Park.

Her date-night look was sexy, yet effortless; she chose a white Helmut Lang collarless blazer with black leather inserts in the neckline, to which she added an ivory scoop-neck top and black leather shorts.

Accessories included a pork-pie hat, an Alexander Wang ‘Devere’ bag (we’ve seen her carry once before), shades and green heels.

I don’t know about you, but wearing shorts to an air-conditioned movie theatre just gave me the chills. Sometimes the temperatures in those theatres go below freezing.

Lily Collins In Helmut Lang & Thakoon Addition – Extra!

Lily Collins In Helmut Lang - Extra

Lily Collins made an appearance on the show ‘Extra!’ at The Grove in LA on Wednesday.

The young actress wore a Helmut Lang Spring 2013 blazer with Thakoon Addition leather shorts, a Loeffler Randall ‘Lock’ clutch, EF Collection earrings and a Givenchy necklace.

While the look is polished and sophisticated, Lily was careful not to let it read too old by leaving her hair down in loose waves.

The addition of the leather shorts and bright red bag also keep the sophisticated blazer fresh and young.

I really love Lily’s fashion choices, and this one is no different. Do you agree? Is this look a win in your opinion?

Nicole Richie In Helmut Lang, J Brand & Stella McCartney – The Today Show

Nicole Richie in Helmut Lang - The Today Show

Nicole Richie, who has also returned from Paris Fashion Week front row duty, was spotted out in New York City yesterday en route to the ‘Today’ show to promote the new season of ‘Fashion Star’.

Does her look qualify her as a fashion star? There is a lot going on here so let’s start from the top.

She wore a Helmut Lang Mongolian-fur jacket slung over her shoulders, which were bare as her Stella McCartney ‘Columbia’ fringe blouse was sleeveless.

J Brand’s ‘Super Skinny’ black leather pants gave her cool look a rock n’ roll edge, as did her House of Harlow circular sunglasses.

The rest of her accessories included snakeskin pumps and a tri-colour Fendi tote.

Take away the fringed top and we have a great look. With such a heavy, textural coat, the top feels a bit fussy.
